DSCN5565_edited-2

Alas, all good things come to an end.  Our big boss will be leaving us for the leisurely life of retirement.  This is a project I made for the office to add the their well-wishes for RDML David Boone.  The pages are covered in a combination of desert and chocolate chip cookie camo, Washington D.C. and Navy-themed patterned papers.  The retirement ceremony is on April 12, so I fixed the clock hands at 4:12.  Not sure anyone will that subtle details but we’ll see. =)
